What about your business are you most proud of?
Our Staff and Customers
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't leave choosing and ordering your dress too late. Some designers will make a dress quickly (3-4 months) for an extra charge but the norm is 5-6 months from order date to be ready. Ideally, you should allow yourself at least 7 months before the wedding to look and order your dress, and this allows for any changes once the dress is made. Leaving it late can be stressful.
What do you love most about your job?
Receiving the thanks of our brides together with images of their weddings. Knowing we've helped make their big day!
What is your favourite style of wedding dress?
Fifties, retro, tea length and shorter style dresses.
